Pumpkins are appearing, flannel shirts are hanging in the closet and at Bright Lights we are thinking about… summer! Let’s face it, we’re always thinking about summer because that’s when we offer our camps. This time of the year is truly the beginning of our season,  as we recruit teachers who are going to make those camps come to life.

Hello I’m Heather Howard, a lifelong learner, former educator, mom and military wife. I have lived in Lincoln since graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2003. I adore Lincoln's small-town vibes with endless opportunities and have served on the Bright Lights Board for almost four years.  

Summer flew by! But we loved every minute of it. And I know that the time students spend at a Bright Light camp can have a lasting impact, far beyond the one-week experience, even when it seems to go so quickly. We interacted with nearly 1,000 students this summer and watched them develop friendships and interests while engaging in hands-on activities in 97 camps that sparked creativity and interest.
